Building an expedition vehicle: The sitting area

The sitting area in our expedition truck is finally finished. With the help of Zepbox we designed an L-shape bench, including 2 storage boxes and 2 drawers. Aside from extra storage space these drawers are also used for transforming the bench into a lounge area (see below).

Installing the bench


Too bad we made a little mistake with the width of the 2 extra pillows for the lounge.


A fixed table leg would be extremely unpractical and take up too much space. It would simply not fit within our layout. Therefore, we searched for an alternative. Eventually we modified a table holder from the boat industry. What we personally like about this holder is that we can turn the tabletop and arm separately in any direction, making it very practical and multifunctional as a dinner table, desk or extra counter space in the kitchen.

Now we only have to add some color, but for that we have throw pillows.

  1. Ziet er goed uit, de tafel is erg praktisch. Nog even de 220v kabel wegwerken onder de bank,en dan is dit hoekje ook weer klaar !
    Succes verder.

    1. Dankje Stephan! Ondertussen hebben we die tafel al goed uitgetest, en we zijn er echt zeer tevreden over. De 220v onder de bank die verdwijnt in de toekomst achter een plint, maar die afwerking moet nog even wachten tot de verwarming ook overal ligt.

  2. Beste Nicole en Elmer,

    Betreffende het tafelblad zou ik aanbevelen de hoeken aan de linkerzijde van het tafelblad (gezien vanuit het standpunt van de fotograaf) af te ronden. Niets is vervelender dan je te stoten aan scherpe hoeken.

    Met vriendelijke groeten,
